Excited to see this....agree that '81 was THE year for Althea...and i've also found that the best '81 shows aren't necessarily the ones w/the most eclectic set lists (and there's not much variance anyway until you get to the end of the year)--so it's worth listening for the quality of performance within the set list rather than looking for wow factors in the sets themselves.

agree, that is much the way to really handle the Dead in the early 80s especially...outside of the 4 set New Years Show, very few shows in 81 wow you with the setlist, I can really only think of maybe 05-16, 08-12, 09-12...
